[Tagging] Specifying maxweight, when different weight limits are signed

The three types of vehicles shown on the sign in the original post are
all HGVs. The differences are in the vehicle configuration - standalone,
with a semitrailer and with a "proper" trailer. So it would need to be
something like maxweight:hgv:notrailer=X, maxweight:hgv:semitrailer=Y,
maxweight:hgv:trailer=Z.

"The maximum allowable weight is listed in tons beside the silhouette
for each of the three classes of vehicles. The SINGLE-UNIT TRUCK
silhouette includes all straight trucks, cranes, and other single-unit
special mobile equipment regardless of the number of axles. The TRUCK
TRACTOR SEMI-TRAILER silhouette includes all truck tractor combinations
regardless of the number of axles. The SINGLE-UNIT TRUCK WITH ONE
TRAILER includes all MAXI-CUBE and TANDEM TRAILER combinations
regardless of the number of axles."
